African Infrastructure Tracker – Ethiopia, Forecast to 2020

African Infrastructure Tracker – Ethiopia, Forecast to 2020

The research service provides an in-depth overview of infrastructure investment in Ethiopia for road, rail, port, airport, information and communications technology (ICT), energy, and social infrastructure. Ongoing and future infrastructure projects are discussed looking at investment amounts, public and private investors, completion dates, and threats and challenges to project completion for the next 5 years. The base year is 2015, with the forecast period being 2016 to 2020.

Key Target Audience
The key target audience would need to understand the investment and infrastructure developments in Ethiopia. Infrastructure development has the most significant impact on long-term growth opportunities in African countries. Any industry interested in the Ethiopian market will need to understand the implications of infrastructure development in transport, energy, and ICT.

Research Scope
Ethiopia is a sovereign landlocked country located in the north-eastern part of Africa, generally known as the Horn of Africa. It is bordered by Somalia and Djibouti in the east, Sudan in the west, Kenya in the south, and Eritrea in the north. It is a member of the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD). This connectivity has provided significant regional trade opportunities for the country, facilitating significant developments in transport, energy, and social infrastructure. The government of Ethiopia has introduced an enhanced private participation to facilitate rapid developments in the roads, rail, airports, ICT, and social infrastructure of the country in the next 5 years.
There are significant challenges to business in the country due to the current lack of transport, energy, ICT, and social infrastructure. Improvements in infrastructure will provide significant opportunities to businesses in Ethiopia.

The period of analysis includes all current, ongoing, and planned future infrastructure projects, both in the private and public sectors.
